After millions of dollars, Maryland lawmakers have abandoned Maryland Health Connect and have adopted the Connecticut platform.
Massachusetts is still tangling with its own Obamacare website, even though the Commonwealth had its own state-sponsored health insurance mandate, which was working well without the interloping of the federal government.

With all the money frittered away on the progressive pipe dream of centrally enforced health insurance, one has to wonder how many doctors, nurses, and hospitals that money could have provided for.
